Got a recycling bin full of glass bottles. Why waste them when you could have a new table lamp.

Turning any rum bottle into a table lamp is very simple. All 
you need to do is outline black liners in zig zag fashion and use glass colour for filling. 

Insert strand of light. The color of the bottle enhances the
glow of the light, adding ambiance to a room.

This painting was inspired by Trishla Jain. I have attended her exhibition in Mumbai in February 2012. Her art is very colourful & vibrant. Loved every bit of the exhibition. While I was browsing thru her art work along with my friend we came across many celebrities. Among them were Neeta Ambani, Sunil Shetty, Akshay Kumar.

This is my original work inspired by Trishla. I have named this painting as Seven Sins. All the seven sins are mentioned in painting. Do check out....

Do give me feedback.

Abstract art can be a painting or sculpture that does not depict a person, place or thing in the natural world. The Abstract art is a collection of meaningless shapes and colors thrown onto a canvas. In such art the viewer interprets its meaning for him/herself. It can be a test of someone’s interpretation skills.

Abstract art is non-objective, non-representational, and nonfigurative. Abstract art is one without a recognizable subject, one which doesn't relate to anything external or try to "look like" something. Instead the colour and form is the subject of the abstract painting.

This form of art is Non realistic. Like any other traditional art where the artist visualizes what he / she wants to capture, in this art form there is no intentional visualization. The artist may start creating artwork without realizing the end result. This kind of art can be perceived in many ways depending on the interpersonal skills / creativity of the viewer. Many a times the audience is not able to understand what the artist is trying to convey. It is up to the viewer to perceive in their own way. 

I wanted to create a   Funky Abstract Style with bold colours, bright shapes and intricate designs! The shape was created spontaneously. I then painted in various shapes, one color at a time. For instance, first I painted in all the yellow shapes. Then all the orange shapes, then dark pink, light pink, etc.

I strive to create a balanced variety of shapes and colors. The idea is that the different shapes and placement of colors will cause the viewer's eyes to bounce around the canvas. In this way I seek to create a sense of movement and energy in this funky artwork. So I continue painting in these shapes until the white canvas is entirely covered.

The repetitive designs start to form funky, sometimes intricate patterns. There are many different shapes and colors, but there is an overall feeling of balance and harmony. I named this Painting as Teenager. A teenager is a confluence of passion, emotion, feelings, and distractions.  A teenager keeps questioning and is always mysterious about the future.  Aggression in teenager is represented in the red border. Red is associated with aggression. When I started this painting I was unaware of the end result.

Diwali is one of my favorite festival with lights and sparkle in every nook and corner. There is so much to do in so little time, at least for the working ladies,  cleaning, shopping, decorating, making dishes etc. I always feel Diwali without preparing sweets and snack is incomplete. Of course now a days one gets everything from market but making at home for Diwali is something different. 

Hope you all had a great time with your family and friends during this festive season. I had a great time. Sharing with you the lovely moments I had during Diwali.
